Aptly named, First Edition will have you wowed and in awe at first sight and first taste.
Sporting a new design and luxe features, the space oozes extravagance, character and charm. Beyond being a convenient and relaxing area for travellers passing through, the diverse space offers a range of different restaurant and bar experiences for every occasion – local foodies and visitors alike!
Have a casual coffee catch up with girlfriends, a boozy long lunch with mates, romantic date night dinner, private corporate meeting among the bookshelves, or lounge in the plush armchairs on a lazy afternoon – First Edition is a great destination for coming together, sharing great food, drinks and conversation.
The First Edition menu changes with the seasons to showcase the very best local produce in the Canberra region. It echoes local touches, warmth and comfort, and is carefully curated to make you feel right at home.
Executive Chef, Jennie, has put her signature passion on the menu, singing praise to fresh produce and creativity, and sticking it to the status quo of standard hotel menus.
First impressions are everything, right? And in this day and age, thanks to Instagram, people eat with your eyes, and a trip to First Edition will not disappoint. As the food arrives your table you will be blown away by the presentation, colours and Jennie’s eye for detail.
The venue also has its very own gin made in conjunction with Canberra Distillery and a special passionfruit signature cocktail, as well as a collaboration with Tea Garden and Co to create the First Edition Black Tea, which incorporates the colours of the hotel and unique floral notes.
Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, First Edition is waiting for your company. Next time you’re looking for a new place to try in the city, whether for a meal or drink before a night out on the town, this one should be at the top of your list. Prepare to be impressed!
